  1. Hi, There seems to be an error in the instructions. In step 1 you add shredded coconut. Step 2 you add coconut sugar. Then you add bananas and coconut…what coconut??

    1. Jackie, Here is the written recipe. The recipe calls for 3/4 cup coconut sugar and that’s it. And it calls for 1 cup shredded coconut, we used unsweetened.

  2. YUM! These were DELICIOUS! They baked faster for me, though, so I almost burnt them…. I flipped my baking sheet after 8min, but then only baked for 3-4 additional minutes. I used coconut oil, slightly softened. Thanks for the great recipe!
